A School Visit and a Goodbye

Saturday, October 14th 2017

Carnagill Community Primary School visited Foxglove on Friday.  The weather was kind and the children were able to hunt for minibeasts.  They had spoons and dishes to collect their finds and magnifying glasses already to examine them.

Already for the minibeast hunt

Dexter Cattle have been on the wetland to help with habitat management since July.  We have said good-bye to them, now and they have returned to Big Sheep Little Cow.  Thank you letting them spend the summer with us.

Checking the cattle last week I was initially concerned that I could not see the calf but then spotted her in the an area of long grass.

Meanwhile the two adults were having a brush and clean up before heading home.
